TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Mrs A N Whitehead
Date2 June 1911
Description'With reference to your letter of 31st, enclosing a cheque for £3.3s for Mr A N Whitehead's annual contribution, will you kindly note that the amount due is three pounds, not three guineas.
I send the cheque herewith, and shall be glad if you will please cancel the words "three shillings" and "3", initialling the alterations, and then return the draft.
In reply to your enquiry, the life composition fee for contributions is £60 (sixty pounds). If paid now, it would not of course be necessary to return the cheque for £3.'
